The BBC2 documentary on tonight about Edward VII turned out to be a hidden gem – it’s induced e-mail exchanges not seen since the likes of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. There is a great review over at On The Box (snippets below), but what I particularly enjoyed is his sex chair pictured above (replica) and below (original). The original is now in private hands and still in use ‘apparently’ – basically enables a man to have sex and go down on a woman at the same time but I still can’t picture it (guessed at that from file name of gobjob) – full review here on a SFW site!
Although few of us were very surprised when yet another well-respected male celebrity was shown up to be nothing more than a gallivanting sex machine last week, royal historians will have been among the least shocked at the news.
Indeed they know that high-profile men have been fudging things up for decades, and that’s before we even consider Prince Philip’s diplomatic career.
